And just for thought...
I was curious to know the dimensions of your face.
I wanted to know how smooth your skin might be
and how your lips would feel against mine
so I came to you on a lazy afternoon.
I wondered what things lurked in your head.
It did not bother me you had no interest in return
because we both knew what we wanted.
You needed to know how long my skin ran.
You wanted to take a picture of my face with your palms
and know the taste of my lips on your tongue
so we pretended.
We pretended to speak to each other
and we pretended to care
because we both knew what we had to.
Under the pale moon, you came to me.
You caressed my prickly skin
and tasted my salty lips.
I invited you inside where I could feel you completely
because that was all that I wanted.
I wanted you under that meaningless moon
but I never wanted anything more.
Neither did you.
So we pretended to care, we pretended everything.
At the end of the day, I'm just a girl who has been in love with writing her entire life. I am full of quirks, anxieties, fears, joys, laughter. And all I have wanted to do was give the world a smile.
